Urban Decay Naked Basics 2

After I fell in love with my Naked 3 palette, I just knew that I had to get my hands on another one by Urban Decay. The Naked 2 palette is one I have wanted for ages but its not really in my price range right now.. but when I saw the Naked Basics 2 palette on the Debenhams website in the black friday sale for around £19 it was purchased immediately! It was not much of a discount though because normally it retails for £22 which personally I think is great. Even more of a boost is that my mum gave me the money and put the palette in with my Christmas present, thanks mum!



As you can see, the palette delivers the usual highly pigmented eyeshadows that Urban Decay always delivers. I think it is the taupey tones in the shadows that appealed to me, I really love the way that they look. All of the shades are matte also which is nice. The colours are perfect for an every day eye or even a night time look due to the darker colours. My favourites have to be Frisk which is perfect for all over the lid and primal for the crease. The darkest colour 'Undone' is good as it is a really dark brown, therefore it is not too harsh like a black may be. I think that soon I will do a post with a look using this palette, they are always fun to do! Do not think there is much more to say about this, just that it is great and so worth the money!





Have you tried any of the Urban Decay palettes?

  1. I love Urban Decay pallets! I agree, they're so highly pigmented so produce a really rich colour and it looks beautiful! Maybe you could do a post on how you've put it on and show us..? Would love to see!

  5. I really need a palette like this for blending out smoky eyes.

    The UD palettes are such good value for money, my original naked palette is still going strong after 3 years! xxx

  9. I love my original Naked Basics palette but I've been thinking about picking this one up. I think I might actually like it more than the original.
